What is Lady Gaga’s net worth? Lady Gaga was born with an extremely long name. She was born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on March 28, 1986, in New York. Gaga’s four names must have provided her with a lot of talent because she learned to play the piano by the time she turned four-years-old. At the age of 11, she was accepted to the Juilliard School in Manhattan but instead went to a private Catholic school.
She continued to study music and wrote her first piano ballad at the age of 13. Her first performance came at the age of 14 in a nightclub in New York. A few years later, Gaga received early admission to New York University’s Tisch School of Arts. She would later learn she was one of only 20 students in the world to receive such an honor.
Gaga ended up removing herself from the school sometime later to find more of a creative spark. In 2005, she was signed by Def Jam Records, but she was let go a few months later. She started working the nightclub scene and collaborated with a few rock bands until 2007 when she began working at Interscope Records as a songwriter for other artists.
During this time, Akon saw her performing a burlesque show and was super impressed. He signed her to his label, and Gaga started working on her debut album. She released ‘The Fame’ in 2008 and it debuted at number 17 on the Billboard 200, and would later peak at the number 10 spot. Needless to say, not only was Lady Gaga’s net worth was exploding, so was her fame.
Side note: As of March 2019, the album has sold over 4 million copies worldwide. It was also nominated for five Grammy awards, including Album of the Year. It featured some of her most well-known songs, including Poker Face and Paparazzi.
Three years later in 2011, Gaga released her second studio album, Born This Way. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 (as well as several other charts worldwide) and sold more than one million copies in its first week. It was the highest total for first weeks sales in five years. The album also produced one of Gaga’s most commercially successful songs, Born This Way.
Gaga was an international pop star and multi-millionaire before she turned 30. After mastering the music world, Gaga shocked her fans by starring in the feature film A Star Is Born alongside Bradley Cooper in 2018. The critics praised her performance in the movie and she was nominated for Best Actress at the 2019 Academy Awards.
